-Naturopathic Physician focusing on nutrition, weight loss, IBS, IBD and women’s health.
As a naturopathic family practitioner at the University Health Clinic in Seattle and at Balancing Health in Woodinville, Dr. Fahoum’s interests and specialties include nutrition, weight loss, IBS, IBD and women’s health. She views healing as a dynamic process, unique to each person, with different treatments appropriate for different patients. This philosophy allows Dr. Fahoum the flexibility to move between modalities, both conventional and natural, in treating patients.
Dr. Fahoum began her study in medicine at the University of Washington where she received her B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology. After exploring the world of research as an undergraduate at the University of Washington, Dr. Fahoum realized that the key to your health is not adequately addressed in the laboratory. Rather, the key is to educate and help you understand, and apply, those changes to your unique life circumstance.
After U of W, she went on to study the science of natural medicine at Bastyr University, graduating in 2004 with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Outside primary care practice, her work also includes public educational forums on naturopathic medicine as well as leading nutrition and weight loss classes for her patients. She is adjunct faculty at Bastyr University and NW Academy for the Healing Arts.
Professionally, Dr. Fahoum is president of her state organization, Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians (WANP). She and the board are actively working to expand knowledge and access to naturopathic primary care in the State of Washington.
Whatever free time there is left, Dr. Mona plays women’s soccer, kayaks and can be found snowboarding at Stevens Pass.
